Welcome back to another year of Dante gatherings, dinners and Italian language classes!

Kicking off this year’s schedule is a presentation by Dominick Minotti (Nick) on “Famous Women of Italian Descent”. This will be the preview of the Festa Italiana quiz that Nick has been creating for the past few years to use at our booth. The September 11th presentation at Dante, however, will be a straight forward talk about the 10 women – six well known, two less known, and two probably new to most Dante members – that Nick will be featuring in this year’s Festa quiz.

Nick is a longtime member of Dante and for the past few years has served as a Consigliere on our Board. He’s been a speaker at Dante for the past several years, always entertaining and engaging.

Joyce Ramee will be our cook so the evening promises to be delicious as well as informative.

As usual our Pre-Dante Pasta Dinner will be ready at 6:30 and the program will start at 7:30. Please feel free to bring an antipasto, dolce, or vino to share. The cost of the dinner is $8 per person or $15 per couple.

If you plan to come for the dinner as well as the presentation, please make your reservation by 5:00 pm Monday September 9 by:
